There are four OCD DSM features (Susan, 2007). The first include the presence of obsessive images, impulses or thoughts. The thoughts are more than a reflection of excess worries. The person is unable to suppress or ignore these thoughts. The thoughts lead to distress and anxiety. The second feature includes the presence of behavior which is repetitive or compulsive. The person performs the action to decrease stress due to OCD. The third feature is that the patient recognizes that the actions are unreasonable and in excess. The fourth feature is that the obsession occupies significant time of the patient (Kohn, 2012).
